With 764 appearances to his name, Giggs is edging his club record way beyond Sir Bobby Charlton to a level it is impossible to imagine anyone ever reaching.
And his 145th goal - a delightful chip 11 minutes from time after Chris Riggott had stood on the ball - means he is just five short of becoming the ninth United player to reach the magic 150.
"It was a nice goal," Giggs said of his latest effort.
"I made my mind up quite early. I knew what I was going to do as soon as I went through so all I had to do was stick to it."
